Oxidation and Reduction in Organic Synthesis

Timothy J. Donohoe

Publication Date - October 2000

ISBN: 9780198556640

96 pages


The manipulation of functional groups by oxidative or reductive processes is central to organic chemistry. Despite the importance of these reactions, no existing text has attempted to summarize them simply for students. Together with a later volume in the series, this book provides a clear and comprehensive summary of oxidative and reductive processes, emphasizing general principles and common factors, and showing the applications of these compounds in organic synthesis.
